    I've never made a good Lager when underpitching. you are screwing something else up then....

    you're advocating poor brewing practices. that's not why we come to this board.No. I am

    I have never put faith in those calculators for homebrewing purposes. With such low volumes of
    beer it is impossible to pitch "the correct" amount of yeast.Make a starter from a vial or
    smack pack the...
